With Venom’s massive box office success, Sony has engraved a place for itself in superhero movie world which is currently ruled by Marvel and DC Films. Well, if actor Vin Diesel is to be believed, there are chances that Sony might even lead the charge of superhero movies of the future and their upcoming project Bloodshot could play a big role in it.
Diesel is all set to play Ray Garrison aka Bloodshot in Sony’s adaptation of the Valiant comic of the same name. The movie comes as part of the film studio’s efforts to build a cinematic universe around various Valiant characters including Harbinger and Faith.
During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Vin Diesel had words of praises for the film’s director and the cast members.
“You’re watching something and you’re going…I guess I expected that we would finally get here in the superhero universe, but I can’t believe we’re here,” the Fast & Furious actor said. “Dave Wilson, who’s directing it. Guy Pearce, who’s in it is insane. We just have a great cast.”
He said he is amazed by Sony’s successful take on the vengeful assassin Bloodshot and hopes that the upcoming film will help the studio take a charge in the superhero movies of the future.
“Sony, you know that Sony is finally going to lead the charge in the superhero movies of the future because they’re incorporating a part of reality and incorporating issues that exist in society and embedding them into a quote-unquote superhero movie,” Diesel said. “It’s just awesome.”
Directed by Dave Wilson from a script by Eric Heisserer and Jeff Wadlow, Bloodshot is in production now. The film’s story revolves around Vin Diesel’s Ray Garrison, a deceased assassin who is resurrected through the use of nanotechnology.
The film also stars Guy Pearce, Sam Heughan, Talulah Riley, Eiza Gonzalez, and Toby Kebbell. It is slated for release on February 21, 2020.
